Re: Hi all

Youíre right Mark, the K13s is an awesome bike especially if you get an HP
If you take it to Hilltop Motorcycles in Hinckley and get it remapped you will be even happier.
Check out UKser website for all the reviews etc.
I had my 07 GS remapped and that transformed it and the same for my K1300SHP.
Enjoy the summer.

Re: Hi all

Hi Mark, my remap wasnít to make the bike even faster although 153 HP at the back wheel is pretty cool, it was really to improve the fuel mixture and take it away from the super lean one map fits all of the world.
In doing that it improved the midrange power and torque, gave a far better fuel economy and massively reduced the vibey engine. The other thing is it will extend engine life because itís not running so lean.
Finally youíre so right itís an amazing bike. Post some pics.
